Osweiler leads Broncos to win over Patriots, ends New England's unblemished start

The Denver Broncos defeated the New England Patriots 30-24 in overtime on Sunday Night Football. The Broncos ended the Patriots' 10-0 start, knocking them from the ranks of the undefeated.

Former ASU quarterback Brock Osweiler finished the game completing 23-of-42 passes for 270 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Denver is now 2-0 with Osweiler as its starting quarterback in place of injured Peyton Manning.

Osweiler is expected to start again this weekend as Manning continues his recovery.
